About the Hermannsburg School


Welcome to the Hermannsburg School. This website was launched in 2002 as a dedication to the Hermannsburg School of Artists and is meant as a resource for students, enthusiasts and collectors. On the site you will find a history section, artists biography page and archives image gallery. My interest in Hermannsbug art began after I acquired a watercolour by Walter Ebatarinja, one of Namatjiras close proteges. Since thenĀ I have handled works by the majority of Hermannsburg artists which form this colourful school of art. If you have any history to share about your Hermannsburg art or artists please add it to the guestbook !
